Chapter 4. Forms: Flash or HTML?

DO OR DIE

  • Are you sure you need fancy Flash stuff?

  • Usability Bob sez, “People are more used to HTML.”

The first question you should ask yourself when doing anything in Flash is, Why not HTML? HTML works in all browsers, doesn't require a plug-in, and loads faster. You can do a lot with DHTML and JavaScript. From a usability standpoint, people are far more used to seeing HTML form elements than Flash ones and are likely to be more comfortable using them.
